This is breaking now, will update as I know more. But with everything else today...well, let's just say there is no such thing as coincidence.

It is suspected that the five arrested men were in contact with five Washington, DC-based radical Muslims, who were also arrested in December. According to several sources, counterterrorism officials uncovered their plan to travel to Pakistan where they could help fight U.S. forces along the Afghan-Pakistani border. It is not known if -- or where -- the alleged conspirators are being detained.
Fort Dix U.S. Army base plot
This is not the first time a deadly plot against a U.S. military base has been thwarted. In May, 2007, five radical Islamists -- three of them brothers -- have been arrested and charged with plotting to kill as many soldiers as possible in an armed assault at the Fort Dix Army base in New Jersey, according to agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
The Fort Jackson terrorist plot against U.S. armed forces personnal came in the wake of a mass shooting at Fort Hood, Texas last November, which killed 13 people -- 12 soldiers and one civilian -- and wounded 31.
That shooting spree was perpetrated by a U.S. Army psychiatrist, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, an American-born Muslim of Palestinian descent. Hasan had been charged and he's being prosecuted within the U.S. military justice system.
The five Muslim soldiers allegedly involved in the Fort Jackson poisoning plot are being investigated by the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigation Division (CID), according to Fox News.
